Vermont Open Studio Days

Vermont Open Studio Days

We’ve been so busy preparing an Open Farm event for you to come visit this weekend to see the animals, browse our Tack Room Shop & observe natural dyeing of wool from foraged materials.  We’re open from 10 – 5 on Saturday and Sunday, our bright yellow signs will post the way, though you can download a map from the Vermont Crafts Council website here.

Our little Tack Room Gift Shop will feature local Wing Farm maple syrup & honey, artist Kristen Blaker’s cards and prints,  wood crafter Matt Bittel’s hand turned rolling pins & Jessica Putnam-Phillips’ pottery in our shop as well.  We’ll have our Wing & A Prayer Farm wool, pies & eggs available.

Hope to see you!

23rd SPRING OPEN STUDIO WEEKEND IS SET FOR MAY 23 AND 24, 2015

A Look Behind the Scenes at Studios of Artisans Across Vermont

It must be Open Studio Weekend when bright yellow signs appear along Vermont’s roads over Memorial Day weekend, guiding visitors to studios of craftspeople and fine artists across Vermont during the 2015 Open Studio Tour on May 23 and 24.

Open Studio Weekend is a statewide celebration of the visual arts and creative process, offering a unique opportunity for visitors to meet a wide variety of artists and craftspeople in their studios, some of which are only open to the public during this event.

The self-guided Open Studio tour features the work of glassblowers, jewelers, printmakers, potters, furniture makers, weavers, ironworkers, painters, sculptors, quilt makers and wood carvers. Many galleries will host gallery talks and feature special exhibits in conjunction with this event.

The Vermont Crafts Council publishes a free map booklet with directions to participating sites. The Vermont Open Studio Guide is available throughout the state at Tourist Information Centers, galleries and studios. It will also available on the VCC website starting in March 2015, http://www.vermontcrafts.com. or by calling 802-223-3380.

The Vermont Crafts Council launched Open Studio Weekend in 1993 to increase the visibility of artists and craftspeople in Vermont and to foster an appreciation for the creative process and the role that artists and craftspeople play in the vitality of Vermont’s communities.

The Vermont Crafts Council is a non-profit organization serving the Vermont visual arts community. Open Studio Weekend is supported by the Vermont Arts Council and by the Vermont Department of Tourism and Marketing.
